Minister of Economic Affairs of the Netherlands said Iran is poised to become a major energy supplier in the 21 century in the world, saying good relations with the country must be maintained.
"I think Iran will be a major supplier in the 21st century for oil and gas not only for the region but for the whole world," said Henk Kamp.
Speaking with Shana on the sidelines of a meeting with Iranian Minister of Petroleum Bijan Zangeneh in Tehran, Kamp said the Netherlands has had good relations with Iran for many years, and "we are happy that the future can be better because of the nuclear agreement of Iran with world powers. There will be good relations between the countries. "
Netherlands is a gas exporting country while being a distributing gas hub. The gas from Russia and Norway comes to Netherlands' Rotterdam Port for distribution throughout Europe.
"We have the biggest port in Europe in Rotterdam and there is a lot of oil and gas storage in the port," he added. "I think that in the future LNG and crude oil from Iran will go to Rotterdam and we will distribute it over Europe.”
Kamp arrived in Tehran November 22 at the head of a large Dutch trade delegation to investigate new business opportunities in post-sanctions Iran.
Over 60 large Dutch companies active in the energy and agriculture sectors are accompanying Kamp in his trip.

Chairman of Coordination Committee of the International Gas Union (IGU) said on Tuesday India and Pakistan are considered a special market for Iran’s gas considering their developing economies.

“Iran has the capacity to increase it gas export and boost presence in the global markets,” Menelaos Ydreos said on the sidelines of an IGU meeting, adding that Iran’s gas industry is advanced and systematic.
New Delhi and Islamabad are substituting natural gas with LNG, he said, “More that 50 percent of the world’s gas is used in Asia. Therefore, there is the potential to supply India and Pakistan with Iran’s gas.”

Managing director of the National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) Hamidreza Araqi made the remarks during the International Gas Union’s (IGU) natural gas working group, adding currently Islamic Republic of Iran exports gas to three neighboring countries including Azerbaijan, Armenia and Turkey and will start natural gas exports to Iraq in near future.

Araqi noted that Iran is the world’s top gas reserves holder with 34 trillion cubic meters.
 “Iran’s gas treatment capacity will hit as much as 330 billion cubic meters per annum by 2017 which in turn will raise the capacity for natural gas exports,” he stated.
NIGC has development of four gas storage projects on the agenda of which two projects have come online so far, NIGC official noted.
“The country produced 173 billion cubic meters of natural gas in 2014,” he said, adding Iran is currently the world's fourth largest producer of natural gas after the USA, Russia and Qatar.
It’s worth mentioning that Iran wants to increase its gas production capacity to 1200 MMcm/d by 2020.
“Also Iran with consumption of 173 billion cubic meters of natural gas in 2014 was the world’s fourth largest gas consumption after USA, Russia and China,” he added.
At the end Araqi mentioned that NIGC aims at ranking the third among natural gas producers in the world to achieve 8 to 10 percent of the global gas trade share. The second objective of NIGC is ranking the first in the region in terms of gas technology.
